As a proven multi-role helicopter, Airbus’ H145M can be deployed in a wide range of missions – from light attack, transport and utility to intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance, as well as maritime security

Light attack

The H145M’s flexible weapons management system enables armed forces throughout the world to complement their fleets with specialized versions of light attack helicopters.


Transport and utility

For troop transport and utility missions, the H145M's unobstructed flat floor can accommodate two pilots and up to 10 troops, who can embark/disembark through both sides and the rear door. They are afforded excellent exterior visibility through large side and rear windows.

Mission equipment packages include a fast rope system, cargo hooks and hoists.

The high-set main rotor and Fenestron® shrouded tail rotor provide unparalleled safety, excellent access in confined landing zones, and loading/unloading of cargo, passengers and patients while the rotors are turning.


Intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance

The optimised cabin volume, along with its low noise levels and reduced infrared signature, make the H145M a discreet and efficient platform that is well suited to intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance (ISTAR) operations.

Maritime security

The added value of the 4-axis autopilot – combined with emergency floats, a weather and search radar, a life raft and an emergency locator transmitter (ELT) – enable the H145M to fulfill day and night maritime security missions

Maritime security missionsinclude exclusive economic zone surveillance and control; maritime counter-terrorism/piracy; ship vertical replenishment; and search and rescue (SAR) or medical evacuation at sea, among others.
